Assume you have collected the snoop output.How do you analysis it ? You can use snoop command it self to read the snoop logs.But its not user friendly.I would recommend you to use wireshark to analysis snoop output from your laptop/Desktop.Here we will see how to analysis snoop data using wireshark.
1.Download wireshark and install it in your laptop. You can download windows version from http://www.wireshark.org/download.html

You can copy the snoop data file from Unix to windows using winSCP.

For an example.if you want to see only dropped packets from these snoop data,use “tcp.analysis.lost_segment” filter.Just type these filter string in that wireshark tab and apply.
5.There are many inbuilt filters available in wireshark. To apply different filter,click on the filter tab and you will get below screen.Select the desired filter and use it.
